Default Mystery Buggy

I aquired this buggy as part of a trade and am looking for any info people may have about it. It's a Kyosho, belt driven, and I'm guessing prob mid 80's vintage. Any info greatly appreciated.
cheers from sunny Oz!

Kyoshso Optima from the mid to late 80's. It's got an "Option House" side gaurds and motor gaurd. Was the car to have at the time here in the states. It was either this car or a Yokomo Dog Fighter if you were racing... At least that's what I remember from those days...

Default KYOSHO OPTIMA 4WD

HI looks like a kyosho OPTIMA mid 80s buggy I have one but I think this is the turbo model not sure hard to get parts for as my one is missing two wheels and two shocks.this was the best electric buggy during the 80s.
I have a manual for this also somewhere?

Not the Turbo version since this one has the Red shocks. I think the chassis was gold for the turbo too. If it's got belt drive, thats an aftermarket upgrade since stock they were chain.

I guess the next question being, are they worth anything? I've had a couple of pm's from people with offers so would like to know if they are reasonable.

This buggy is now on www.ebay.com.au item number 140042288730.
There is no mention of posting overseas in the listing (I forgot that bit) but shipping to your location can be arranged.
